If you take the… concept behind the Senran Kagura games and throw it into a Phantasy Star Online-like game, you get Scarlet Blade by Nexon. This is a free-to-play MMORPG with busty characters roaming the realms. A recent update to the game features a character drawn by Tiger & Bunny character designer Masakazu Katsura.

The above is a look at “Whipper,” an original character that will be part of a new quest added in the update, available to players who’ve followed the line of quests thus far.

 

The update will be rising the level cap from 44 to 49, and will be adding new bosses and dungeons. Here’s a look at some the content:

Players looking forward to seeing some more skin in the game can also look forward to the added puzzles and new costumes:

Scarlet Blade is currently available to play on PC.

    So Katsura made a character for Queen’s Blade Online (the original name of this MMORPG)? She looks cute but I doubt it’ll get me to play the game once Aeria Games eventually gets this update.

    Katsura was the character designer for Tiger and Bunny? I had no idea.

      If I recalled, Keiichi Satou, the creator behind Big O, Karas and Tiger & Bunny, is also a character designer. I’m not sure if he supervised the designs on T&B but it’s really clear the designs looked just like his. One notable thing I like on his style is the angular features present on the characters’ faces.

      Well the more you know.

      Oh dang forgot to post the images or the net’s just being a dick.

    I miss this game, but due to a number of unfortunate circumstances i’ve been unable to play. (and yes i miss my whippers dearly.) if we ever get this character here in NA i’ll try it out when i’m able to play again.

      High five fellow Whipper lol

    I wanted to tell you all that Masakazu Katsura is not just a regular designer. He’s also writing and illustrating currently ongoing Seinen manga Zetman. Which is awesome BTW. Don’t watch Zetman’s anime because it sucks. Zetman manga is a well-written serious story with believable characters and it’s worth reading

      lol, I know I stopped watching the anime at ep 8. The OP song is great though.

        Ha, I also stopped watching the anime at ep 7/8!

        • Aunna Terrell

          I dropped the series when Jin and Hanako became an item to some dramatic background music, lol. I was like “Whooooa, they became an item too fast! Not believable! And that music! UGH HORRIBLE! *drops Zetman*”

      Zetman is like my favorite manga of all time so the release schedule for scans is killing me.

    Very nice design although I haven’t played Scarlet Blade in forever lol

  • TheBlackKnight3

    She looks just like Blue Rose. Watch Tiger and Bunny if you haven’t it’s IMO the best anime ever made.

  • Guest

    Well … I think that overall, Senran Kagura is still better than this game !

  • Dystopiq

    If you play this game, you should be ashamed.
